Ryusen Hamono

Ryusen Hamono is another fantastic maker working out of the Takefu Knife village. They fully embrace the tradition of the region and take great pride in every step of the knife making process. They produce knives with excellent fit & finish,  and sharpness that are absolutely beautiful to look at and hold. Winners of numerous design awards and supporters of the Japanese national team at the Bocuse D'or their knives are popular with professional chef's and home cooks alike.

The Knife

The Tangan-ryu line features gorgeous Canadian maple handles with a full welded stainless steel tang, and ferrule where these knives balance. This balance point is more typical of European style cutlery so if you're interested in Japanese steel with a French/German feel these are a great option.  Equally beautiful is the Tsuchime finish and Damascus pattern made from VG-10 stainless steel providing easy maintenance. The fit and finish is as close to perfect as we've seen and no detail has been overlooked, including the packaging for those who appreciate a nice knife box! ;)

The Nakiri is designed for vegetable chopping and more specifically for an up and down chopping motion. The tall blade provides a great amount of travel for the user's guide fingers, the flat profile means no stuck together pieces when using that up and down motion and the flat spine can be used to scrape things across your cutting board without damaging the edge.



Knife Care (Stainless Steel)

  • Although this knife is made from stainless steel we do still encourage our customers to keep their knives as dry and clean as possible.
  • NO DISHWASHER - the high heat will ruin the wooden handle.
  • Wash and dry by hand using regular dish soap and warm water using a none abrasive sponge or cloth.
  • Ensure the knife is dry before being put away for storage and ensure the edge of the knife is protected to avoid any unnecessary dulling.
  • Avoid Bones, Frozen foods, nuts and hard candies or anything other than fruits, vegetables and proteins.
